Time to Banish Those Unused Plugins
We have two tabs on this utility, the first one is uninstallers. This works by reading the original installation scripts and reversing the process, while making sure not to uninstall files used by other plugins. If you cannot find the plugin you want to uninstall, the it doesn’t have a normal receipt file. This is where the All Plugins tab comes in.
All Plugins mode can delete any individual plugin. You can filter this view by the plugin format using the selector at the bottom here, so you can zoom in on AU format or VST 2/3 formats allowing you to remove the formats you no longer use. You can also use the reveal in finder option so you can manually quarantine a plugin for troubleshooting purposes. To access this, just right click on the plugin and choose ‘reveal in finder’. This is also handy to go to the plugin if you ever have to manually update it. If you know the name of the plugin, you can search for it in the finder bar at the top. So if I type in CS-80, I get the CS-80 plugin.
This utility works with all formats, including VST, VST3, AU, AAX, CLAP and RTAS.
See how easy that was? No more hunting for hidden files or praying to the tech gods. This baby works with all formats, from VST to RTAS, and even lets you remove plugins you barely remember installing. You can check this out more in the following video:
